In our world of advancing technology and time constraints, where time saved is money earned, a lot of transcription service providers stress vehemently on newer methods of improving productivity and output standards. More and more transcriptionists are taking advantage of keystroke saving software tools to improve their performance and thereby their income.


The latest generation of typing saving tools allow MTs to direct their computers to expand a few judiciously typed characters into strings of common words, phrases, paragraphs or even entire short repetitive reports. The proper use of such methods has been shown to cut production time by almost one-half to one-third. Besides, not only improving speed, these tools have improved accuracy of the generated reports by minimizing the errors to the least. A few of such tools available are:
